    When you go to the PWS cabins, they are all gone except 1 or 2 and they only have a day or so available. I wonder how you can get these as 180 days out wouold be JUne 6th as of today?

    Default Cabin Rental

    Are you renting the cabin for big game hunting. Spring bear? Its very strange tha the State and Feds can rent a cabin to a big game hunter but a private property owner in an area not "associated with a city town or village" may NOT rent to a big game hunter unless you are a licenced guide or a transporter who provides the the transportation to the cabin. Go figure and check my previous posts on the subject

    It is more than strange I think. It is totally absurd that a private property owner may not rent to a big game hunter; unless he is a guide. And as I understand it TRANSPORTERS may not rent or provide a cabin to big game hunters either.

    Chalk it up to another piece of special interest legislation that favors commercial hunting (guides) over every other interest.

    I've rented that cabin a number of times. Make sure you take lots of rope to anchor for the night. The cabin sits above a shelf and it is above the water line for some distance at low tide. Once you get out beyond the flat area it drops off very fast. I try to work it so that I arrive and leave at high tide as the water is right up near the fire pit outside the front door of the cabin. This saves a lot of packing on very slick rocks.

    There is a log book in the cabin that tells of a lady's husband falling off the rocks and knocking himself out and nearly drowning several years ago. It is a horror story for sure.

    I have had many pleasant trips to that cabin and I'm sure you will enjoy it. The cabin is dark inside and the logs soak up light like crazy and some people take a small Honda generator to string an electric light inside but I don't like the noise myself.

    Default tent platforms

    What can you tell me about the tent platforms you see out PWS. I have ran across anumber of them over the years. I have heard they are provided by the state. If this is true, must be a first come kind of thing. Sure would be nice to have the locations of sites. Any ideas?

    Default Tent pads

    I have seen them as well, the ones I have seen had no day use fee signs, so I have no idea. I thought they were first come use as well. They talk about them on the state park website but don't say anything about a fee.

    Rent a cabin? What a strange idea... I bring mine with me.




    OK, so it belongs to a family member...but I can use it whenever I'd like
